    Openssh-server installation problem

    After typing the command "apt-get install openssh-server", the message below pops up:
    -------------------------------
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information... Done
    Package openssh-server is not available, but is referred to by another package.
    This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
    is only available from another source

    E: Package 'openssh-server' has no installation candidate
    -------------------------------
    I googled this message for a while and found this quite common when installing softwares.

    Is there something not yet done so this problem is here? Any help appreciated. (fixed)

    Um...when I type
    "sudo apt-get install openssh-server" to install the OpenSSH server application. It didnt specify the version. But to me, the latest would be great.

    When I typed this "sudo apt-get -y install openssh-server"
    It works!

    In my experience, if I ever get "Package 'openssh-server' has no installation candidate", that just means to run "apt-get update" first and then try to install.
